Plugin dev: where did the name go?

Recommended Posts

In current master, it looks like save local no longer proposes the name of the first mesh as the filename. Back to typing in a name. However, my plugin was also trying to use the following to propose an initial file name, but it no longer works. Did the property move? If so, where to?

 

for n in BreadthFirstIterator(node):   if n.getMeshData():       fileName = n.getName()       if fileName:           break

 

where node is passed into OutputDevice.requestWrite

Ah right. It could be that we broke a bunch of stuff while doing this. The code does use the first name it finds as the name to write to the output device, but if no node has a name set, it returns None.

This proves that it's always a good idea to not completely trust the data that you receive from other parts of the application and build in a check if the received name is not set.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
